Celebrity Planet: Inside Jessica Alba's Baby Nursery and More!
Tick tock, tick tock... Jessica Alba's due date is fast approaching, but the mom-to-be and star of the new film Meet Bill can cross off one thing from her to-do list: Her baby's nursery is ready!
For a Mother's Day feature, the actress gave Us Weekly a tour of her daughter-to-be's lavender, pink and white room that features formaldehyde-free wood and low-VOC paint from Nurseryworks and talked about why it was important that it was green all the way.
"That's the way I live," the actress, who is engaged to Cash Warren, tells the mag. "I've been into anything eco-friendly or sustainable for a little while now, and I wanted to make this environment as nontoxic as possible."
And a little extra tidbit for you: Star magazine reports that Jessica plans to name her baby Honor. Cute though I think she should really draw attention to the green cause and go with "Biodegradable" or "Recycle" Warren instead. Celebrities are known for their bizarre kiddie names.
Speaking of Star, there was a funny blind item in the magazine this week that I thought was completely transparent. (Or maybe I've been in the gossip business too long?) Here's the item:
We Can't Tell You, But... Which small-screen star who moonlights as a drummer turned off a lady he was hooking up with? The unpleasant smell of the ecofriendly soap he uses makes him stink, she says.
I don't think it can be anybody but Entourage star Adrian Grenier, who plays drums for the band Honey Brothers. He's a huge green guy as well — his Brooklyn, NY home is green with recycled blue-jean insulation, a solar roof and reclaimed oak floors — which makes the green soap plausible.
Stinky or not, I doubt too many ladies I know would kick him out of bed.
The fellas from The Police — Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers — announced that they're done touring forever (their "last ever concert" will take place in Manhattan), but they're not done giving.
Earlier this week the fellas were in New York City to announce their $1 million donation to MillionTreesNYC, whose goal it is to plant and care for one million new trees across the city over the next decade. The city matched The Police's donation, so together that will plant 10,000 new trees and help reforest 2,000 acres.
Also in the giving mood? Pamela Anderson. She held an estate sale last weekend and cleaned house — literally — unloading personal items to benefit her favorite charity, PETA.
I applaud her for bringing in big bucks on things like a golf cart, bedroom furniture and a Sony flat screen TV, but I was pretty gross out to read that she also sold used lingerie!
One of my daily addictions is Gawker and they ran a poll this week asking which celebrity environmentalist is the biggest hypocrite. Then it listed celebs and their green gaffes like Barbra Streisand, who demands 120 bath towels at each appearance, and Madonna, who invests in an oil company. But the celeb voted the biggest hypocrite is John Travolta, who talks about global warming, but owns five planes and has his own runway.
Personally, I think John should be in the doghouse for his new moustache. Seen it? He totally looks like one of the guys from The Village People.
